Canadian immigration lawyers have said U.S. Ted Cruz should be able to renounce Canadian citizenship “lickety-split” if there are no security or mental health issues.
A letter/article from Lynne Swanson (aka Blaze) to Senator Cruz asks him what’s taking so long to shake his embarrassing Canadian citizenship. Cruzing In Reverse also tells Senator Cruz how different the situation is for “accidental American” Canadians who simply (like him) want to shake free from their country of “technical” citizenship.
The article concludes by asking Senator Cruz:
Even though you don’t want to be one of us, will you do one thing for us before you leave us?
Will you use your position as a US Senator to give Canadians with some bizarre US connection a “lickety-split” option to relinquish or renounce U.S. citizenship so they can maintain their honest, productive Canadian lives without intrusion of a foreign government?
Please help us to be able to “rock and roll and be good to go” away from American citizenship–just as you are able to do with Canadian citizenship.
If you don’t want to do it for us, here’s another good reason to do it. It will tick off your adversaries President Obama and Senator Levin. Finally, if you really want to send Obama and Levin into a tizzy, you could work with Senator Rand Paul to Repeal FATCA.
Best wishes as you cruz out of Canada. Please help us cruz out of United States.
